News release from the Mike Avila for City Council campaign:
Statement from Mike Avila on Harper’s support for illegal contractor ordinance
(August 9, 2011) – Today, Mike Avila, candidate for Fort Wayne’s 4th District City Council, issued the following statement:
“Mitch Harper has continually championed the illegal contractor ordinance since its introduction, wasting taxpayer time and money, and potentially exposing our city to costly litigation,” said Mike Avila. “I’m glad that Harper has finally come to his senses and dropped his proposed ordinance. However, his actions show a disregard for the laws of our state, and for the residents of our community. As a former state legislator and a lawyer, Harper should know better. The citizens of the 4th District deserve a councilman who will focus on keeping our city finances strong and attracting businesses that create jobs — not playing politics and wasting taxpayer time like Mitch Harper has.”
Mike Avila is running for Fort Wayne’s 4th District City Council seat to represent middle class families and residents. A honest and effective advocate, Mike will fight to hold down city spending, attract companies that create good paying jobs, and improve the infrastructure of the 4th district by focusing on sidewalks and street repairs. Mike isn’t a career politician — on Council, he’ll be a fresh voice for Fort Wayne residents.
